Hello,

My 69 has the SS front trim and HAD a SS badge on the trunk lid (its a SS clone) but the rear one was missing when I purchased the car. I got a new one but the holes in the trunk lid are 4 inches apart and the pegs on the back of the 'SS' badge are 3 1/4" apart.

Do they make SS badges with diff spacings? Or am I screwed because the prev owner must have miscalculated the hole locations when drilling?

Thanks

My only guess would be that the 70-72 tailpiece (the one set up for the wider tailights) has a different stud spacing for the SS emblem. Doesn't make sense, but I've seen stranger stuff. Either that , or the source you got your SS emblem from isn't that picky when specifying what their items fit.

If you can get online to eyeball some closeups of some 68-9 SS cars, maybe that will clue you in on any inaccuracies to the part you bought.
